  7. Front Brake Light Switch

    Transalp
    I was just doing a spot of maintainance on the TA and noticed the front brake light switch is knackered. Switch sounds like it's activating but doesn't close the circuit. If I disconnect the switch and manually make the connection the light comes on so the wiring seems to be fine. Is the switch...

  11. Clutch lever SLR 650

    Dominator / FMX
    I recently managed to drop my SLR 650 on the drive whilst cleaning it (don't ask!). The clutch lever snapped off so I bought a replacement on eBay for a reasonable £5.00. The lever is not dog legged and as I have smallish hands the reach to the lever is awkward. Can anybody recommend a...

  20. 81 xl185 kick start slipping

    XL
    Now I think I know the answer here, but I'll ask, just in case there's a pleasant surprise awaiting... The kick start quite often slips on the xl, luckily it's a good starter. Is it likely to be the shaft or the ratchet gear that's knackered and how much of a job is it to put right? I'm...
